Create a Profile and Save a Plan for Your Show

We're saving millions of sheets of paper by producing a Show Directory Map instead of a Buyers' Guide! The Show Directory Map is a condensed, easy-to-carry guide for your use onsite that will list only basic information. Please use the Show Directory as your up-to-the-minute exhibitor list and show itinerary of all of the exhibitors, events, and education available at Expo East.

Greening Your Travel

New Hope Network has teamed up with the non-profit Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) to offset the environmental impacts of Expo East. Attendees and Exhibitors can green their travel to and from the event through the purchase of renewable energy certificates. Join the Green Team and choose to offset your travel when you register online! If you have already registered but would like to offset your travel to Expo East, please call Customer Service at 1.866.458.4935.
